Aberdeenshire country property market remains extremely competitive
A recent residential market report produced by property consultancy, Galbraith has shown there has been no let-up in activity, particularly in the £250,000 - £400,000 price bracket.
Year-on-year sales have increased by 85.7 percent for the quarter ending June 30.
The number of viewings conducted with prospective purchasers has doubled this quarter compared to the previous quarter of the year and over double the number of property market appraisals have been carried out over the same period.
The residential team in Aberdeen continues to bring more properties to the market for sale, with a 26 percent increase on the first quarter of this year and up 45 percent compared to the same period a year ago.
Hannah Christiansen, head of the estate agency team in Aberdeen, said: “We have witnessed incredible levels of activity in the Aberdeenshire property market with our team handling a growing number of buyers and preparing a larger volume of properties for the market this quarter, as confidence soars amongst sellers and buyers alike.
“The majority of buyers are making a lifestyle change by moving to Aberdeenshire.
"Areas around Inverurie, including Rothienorman, have gained interest from those moving within Aberdeenshire who now appreciate the value for money and space that a more rural location can offer.
“The market seasonally quietens down towards the end of October when we would normally witness an adjustment over the winter months, however momentum continues and it’s difficult to say at this stage if things will go back to pre-pandemic levels in the New Year or if we’ll remain in a highly active market.”
